I've had alot of questions lately about my new sick rooster ( definitely coryza) and hen that I got last tues....I put them in with my one hen and duck for a whole 24 hrs BEFORE I realized he was ill...I'm at the point now that I'm ready to call the man that I bought them from to take them back BUT I need some advise about my existing hen and duck that were in close quarters with the 2 sick ones... Do you think they are now carriers too even though here it is Sunday and no one looks ill or did we get lucky and no one caught it? I'd love to acquire new healthy chicks ( no more adult purchases...I learned my lesson ) because the whole reason why I got the rooster to begin with was I wanted to give hatching a try... Should I wait for a while to see if any signs of illness come up and if none do assume no one is ill?? I don't know what to do and the duck is my daugther's pet and the hen was an easter gift 2 yrs ago as a chick...both are sentimental to our family. I'm confused with this 'carrier' phrase I keep reading....could they now host the disease and not show symptoms or will they definitely come down with something soon? HELP!
